Donald Trump's Personal Driver Sues for a Ton of Overtime Pay
Cintron, it says, was not paid overtime for more than 20 years, but under the statute of limitations can only claim six years' worth, which the lawsuit put at a total of 3,300 hours owed at "time and one-half".
"Mr. Cintron was at all times paid generously and in accordance with the law", the spokesperson said in a statement provided to Business Insider.
At the time, Trump said that "We pay everybody what they're supposed to be paid, and we pay everybody on time..."
Two lawyers for the Trump Organisation did not return phone calls on Monday seeking comment on the suit, which was filed in state Supreme Court in Manhattan. But the time that he was allowed to go home varied greatly since Cintron was expected to be on the job until Trump, family, or business associates were done doing everything they needed to do for the day, detailed Bloomberg. He worked as long as 55 hours per week, but was paid a fixed salary of $62,700 in 2003, $68,000 in 2006, and $75,000 in 2010, according to the complaint.
Trump's Floridian golf resort was previous year ordered to pay USD$32,000 to a paint supply company who alleged the President failed to pay for an order of paint that was used in resort renovations.
Larry Hutcher, a lawyer for Cintron, said his client had not sued sooner because he had been unaware of his rights, and that it was "regrettable" a lawsuit became necessary.
Cintron said he was Trump's personal driver until the Secret Service took over.
The suit alleges federal and state labour law violations and seeks six years of unpaid overtime - the legal time limit for such claims - plus interest, attorneys' fees and unspecified damages. "It was something that he did not want to push", Hutcher said.
